dustandroses solved a fic question just by writing about it on her LJ. I liked the idea, as I’m having recently a hard time trying to focus on mine I’ll try the same strategy here. Of course I like the sound of my voice a lot, so if you’re not in the mood to hear about it you don’t have to.

So I had this brilliant idea of writing a ficlets series about five senses. Yeah, I was probably insane when it happened. Anyway two were written, Watching (with Jason Cramer drooling over Keller’s vision) and Tasting (oh, if only Toby had actually seen Chris being blown by somebody else... I’d pay high to see his reaction!). Now there are three more, probably named I head it through the grapevine, Smells like Oz spirit (or inmate’s spirit, I’m not sure about it) and Hands on.
The first two are in progress, or at least they were last time I saw them. Guess what? I was thinking about Rebadow and Busmalis talking about our favorite inmates, after lights out, discussing B/K relationship dynamics, but after 300 words I noticed it was pure shit, and that I couldn’t stand an entire fic with just them dialoguing. Now I’m thinking in say goodbye to those guys and try to use the idea (people discussing about Beecher and Keller) with other characters. O’Reilly brothers maybe? LoPresti and Mineo? Nah, don’t think so, I wouldn’t stand a fic just with them too!
Murphy’s having his chance at my smelling ficlet – does anybody remember when I asked about blood smell sometime ago? He’ll be have something to say concerning to it while wandering about the joys of being a correctional officer at Oz. Of course his nose will smell many other things, and so far I’m happy with the few amount of paragraphs which are already written.
Hands on will be Keller’s show, of course. The guy touched many things during the show, from shanks to broken necks, but personally I preferred when he was touching his Toby, *g* Until now I don’t know what I’ll write, but at least I decided it’ll happen during Clak.
Aftertaste was somehow the mirror to Tasting, and I really liked how it came to me. It was unexpected, because so far I don’t trust too much on my writing skills, so I don’t intend to write stories with 2 or 3 chapters. Thinking about these two stories now I see they’re just one bigger fic, which means in the future I’ll try to write longer stories. I had an idea to one, probably it’ll be named Three times a lady, starring Claire Howell and her three darlings: McManus, O’Reilly and Keller. I was thinking in three chapters, each of them telling how they interacted during the show. Nothing written on this one too.
The sonnet written to roving_eye flashmob was one of the hardest things I’d ever written, because 1) I was never a big poetry fan and 2) I was never a poetry writer, even during Literature classes. And try to write in a language that’s not yours! But it was a challenge, and I’m proud to say that I accepted that. It’s not the best sonnet ever written, however in the end I thought it was a funny thing to do – after looked for rhymes at online dictionaries for two hours, let’s say it.
Ah yes, Paradise... probably dustandroses, desert_rifka and winthrop think I’d given up the idea of writing about sex and food, but I’d just lost control over this monster! It started as a drabble idea suggested by Dusty, partially betaed by Rifka and with information only Roberta could gave me – she’s not known as Mrs. Winthrop for nothing, the girl knows everything about Franklin appearance at Oz! I've written more than 1,000 words and the sex and food part hadn't come out to play, though, which annoys me a lot. And you know what? Rifka suggested good scenes about that, but I'm far from that part and don't have the slightest idea when I'll be writing about it! As I said it's a monster, sometimes I want to bang my head over nearest wall to see if it comes out completely written. And I even have the nerve to call it Paradise, ho ho ho.
Hum, it was good to write all this shit. At least I thought a little more about each of my stories, now I can go sleep and be possessed by them just tomorrow.

Good luck with your writing!:) There are better people than me to help you if you have any problem , but if you need a suggestion about plot or anything just e-mail me.

"...probably it’ll be named Three times a lady, starring Claire Howell and her three darlings: McManus, O’Reilly and Keller."

OMG, now I have this image of Claire smacking Omar( her true unfulfilled love) while Lionel Ritchie sings.*g*

LOL - I forgot about him!! Poor guy, he'll deserve an epilogue at my fic, probably named "The lady and the tramp"!!

Re: Hey...
I know, but it's a shame! The original drabble is now a scene of the fic, and I'm thrilled because I *could* made it longer, but it should have been finished looooooong time ago!!
